Karine Jean-Pierre Says that SCOTUS Has Unconstitutionally Returned the Roe

White House press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre said Wednesday the Supreme Court’s overturning of Roe v. Wade was “unconstitutional.”

Speaking at the press briefing, Jean-Pierre said the decision in Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization that overturned Roe v. Wade was an “unconstitutional action.”

“From day one, when the Supreme Court made this extreme decision to take away a constitutional right, it was an unconstitutional action by them,” Jean-Pierre said.

“This decision is the culmination of a deliberate effort, over decades, to upset the balance of our law,” President Joe Biden said in June. It’s an expression of extreme ideology, and it is a terrible error made by the Supreme Court. The court has done what has never done before: expressly take away a constitutional right that is so fundamental to so many Americans that it had already been recognized.”

The Democratic National Committee (DNC) chair Jaime Harrison called the high court “illegitimate” after Roe was overturned. Responding to the tweet of Lindsey Graham (Republican South Carolina Senator), Harrison called the high court “illegitimate”.

It is not up to you or this illegitimate judge, or any bunch of elected state officials, to decide what happens with a woman’s body. That decision belongs to a women and nobody else. Period!! Harrison said. HTML3_ It’s not up to you or this unlegitimate court of the state to determine what happens to a woman’s body… That decision belongs to her and only she! Period!!! https://t.co/Hrwl2KceZz
